Listening HELLO step 2ck folks

Hello everyone, I plan to start studying for Step 2ck while doing clinical rotations.

From my research i have gathered that most people use [MTB2, MTB3, Uworld]. What else do i need to know before starting my prep. Are there things you would advice i start doing earlier?

All opinions and advice are more than welcomed. thanks

Also, you need Kaplan's Lecture Notes & Videos & Qbank, and I would say First Aid as well. I have no an idea why people do not like FA but I really really like it, and think it is very good book for CK preparation.

May God help you!!

Ok based on the response it seems KLN and Videos are important too. Just that i see several of people who did it and they say they forgot everything on it. Also when you say, FA, do you mean FA for CK or FA for Step 1?

And i don't plan on taking it anytime soon. maybe in a year, but i wanted to get a head start.

I haven't heard much about DIT for step 2ck...but i will do some research on that.

Yep! When you go to kaptest.com, go to USMLE and you will see STEP 1, 2ck, 2cs, 3 and so forth. Click on STEP 2CK, and you will see Comprehensive, High yield, qbank, and supplemental.

In Comprehensive, you will see options of what type of classes do you wish to take. These include live lecture, online lecture (videos), Classroom anywhere (also online), Center prep.

In High yield, this the online videos based on the MTB 2. The book is sold separate. It's a year subscription.

In qbank, well, you know, qbank.

In Supplemental, there is bunch of cases by Dr. Fisher.


I got online lecture videos and high yield online videos.

Will see how it goes!!!
